This time, with more Joker!
As far as iconic covers featuring the Clown Prince of Crime go, few can compare with Jerry Robinson’s DETECTIVE COMICS #69 cover, with a looming Joker hovering over the Dynamic Duo. Let’s take a look, shall we?
It’s near-impossible to top a master like Robinson, but artist Walt Simonson is a legend in his own right. His reinterpretation of the cover — which will serve as the variant to DETECTIVE COMICS #866 -- brings out the kinetic and dynamic composition that has become a staple of his work.
